by their families, the vice president of the united states and the republican vice presidential nominee. a strong debate with clear differences on some of the most critical issues facing the american voter. involving taxes, medicare, abortion rights for women, the vice president came out swinging today. unlike president obama. he immediately raised the issue of romney's controversial 47%. and he also spoke aggressively about the president saving the american auto industry, gm and chrysler in particular, but there was a testy exchanges on medicare and so many other issues. it looks like -- looks like at least to me, pretty much of a draw as far as this debate is concerned. we'll have full reality checks from our john berman, tom foreman, going through the facts described today. who was telling more of the truth. who was fibbing a bit. going through all of that tonight. you also saw those focus group results at the bottom of the screen. who liked what they saw. these were independent voters in virginia, we're certainly going to hear from them. erin burnett is standing by. we'll hear if any of them
the whole debate, if perhaps the vice president, just like president obama last week was not aware the fact it was a split screen and people were watching for a reaction shot from him. and so when he was listening and not interrupting, he was oftentimes smiling or shaking his head or making a face. for some people, that might be a turn off, but i have to tell you, given the age difference and experience difference and the life experience difference, beyond that political experience between these two people, i think the body language reenforced the verbal message we were getting. this is a young junior account executive debating the ceo of the company. biden came across as credible. i don't think he came across as rude. he knew more of subjects being asked of him than his opponent. >> that was clear when he talked about foreign policy. we want to talk about troops in afghanistan. >> you would rather americans -- >> we are already sending americans to do the job, but fewer of them. >> that's right, we are sending in more afghans to do the job. >> you said this was a really telling moment
here on a mission. congressman ryan to criticize the obama administration's failures and republican solutions while vice president biden was defending the presidential record and also complaining about the republican plan for the nation. >> i will be very specific -- >> reporter: vice president joe biden wasted no time challenging congressman paul ryan's take on foreign policy. >> with all due respect that's a bunch of malarky. not a single thing you said is accurate. >> reporter: the vice president and ryan clashed over the economy. taxes. and medicare. with the democrat often on the attack. >> they are holding hostage the middle class tax cut. about time they take some responsibility. >> reporter: but ryan fired back. he slammed the obama administration's economic record. >> this is not what a real recovery looks like. we need real reforms for a eal recovery and that's what mitt romney and i are proposing. >> reporter: after several heated exchanges ryan said romney's performance last week is motivating the vice president. >> i know you're under a lot of duress to make up for los
, the journey will take two days. >> the two vice-presidential candidates went head-to-head in a television debate last night with joe biden taking on paul ryan. >> president obama was viewed as having under-performed last week. >> he said he had been too polite to romney. the vice-president attack targets. >> my friend recently said 30% of the american people are takers. these people are my mom and dad, my neighbors. they pay more effective tax down governor romney does. >> the two clashed over foreign affairs. ryan says the killing of the syrian ambassador prove that his policies are wrong. >> it makes us more we can project weakness. our adversaries are much more -- >> with all due respect, that's a bunch of malarkey. >> his campaign certainly needed a boost. >> more on the surprise announcement about the nobel peace prize. >> don't go away. >> produces high quality seeds, starting small. >> we have the trust. we have proved to the bank that a woman can be equally competitive. >> worldbank.org/gender. >> many european leaders are delighted that the eu has won the nobel peace prize but it
barack obama failed to live up to expectations last week. we certainly saw that tonight as both the vice president and paul ryan went back and forth first over iran seeking a nuclear weapon. >> it makes us more weak. it projects weakness. when we look weak, or adversaries are much more willing to test us. >> with all due respect, that's a bunch of ma larky. >> why is that so? >> bass not a single thing he said is accurate. >> things got more heated when the discussion turned to domestic issues. joe biden attacked mitt romney about his comment of 47% of americans seeing themselves as victims. it's something the president did not do. >> for a guy who says 47% of the american people are unwilling to take responsibility for their own lives, my friend in a spheech in washington said 30 per of the american people are takers. these people are my mom and dad, the people i grew up with, my neighbors. they pay more effective tax than governor are romney pays in his federal income tax. >> when barack obama was elected, his party controlled everything. they had the act to do everything of of their c

views on how. last night when it we begin in ypsilanti, michigan, on our support president obama line. hi, lovada. caller: thanks for taking my call. i watched the debate and i learned a little more about mr. ryan, but i was especially proud of vice president biden because he hit the issues. and, again, i was reminded that although i have not forgotten, that i've been a 47% that mr. romney is not interested in. the debate went very well for mr. biden. host: thanks for calling. here's the front page of "the huffington post" online. and we want to show you the daily caller. i guess we don't have that one quite ready. next, bill in massachusetts on our republican line. caller: good morning. first, i felt martha raddatz did an excellent job. at times it seemed like ryan was debating two people, the moderator and that joe biden. ryan still kept his cool and did a great job. biden is the reincarnation of harold stasstzen. his incessant interrupting, smirks, giggles and laughing at ryan, he was trying to sucker right into losing his temper, but ryan did not fall for that. an embarrassing dis
